An early career historian specializing in social, cultural, and military history of the Victorian Era and World Wars, I am interested in the role of culture and technological developments, such as globalization’s impact on digital media and communication, throughout history and with current events. I focus on the role of culture in military conflicts, diplomacy, and globalization and how it manifests itself into various forms ranging from international summits to film and music. My career goals include using digital media platforms to make historical and cultural education material accessible and appealing to a varied, global audience.
